On Friday, the Chairman of the Commission on Security and Corruption Control Vasilii Piskarev announced that the State Duma Commission on investigation of foreign interference in the internal affairs of Russia was receiving new materials.
“I should say that new materials and information on the issue of the Commission work are made available to us,” he said.
Piskarev reminded of the Commission to analyze and study this information in accord with its authority, as well as “new data and circumstances of foreign states’ interference” in the internal affairs of the Russian Federation. The results of the Commission will be presented to the public, the parliaments of other countries and international organizations.
“If there are grounds, we can also prepare legislative measures to protect our sovereignty. We have already directed the requests to all Russian law enforcement agencies, the State authorities and other organizations, as well, to provide available information,” the Chairman of the Commission noted.
On August 19, the Federation Council and the State Duma decided to form a commission on the proposal of all factions.
